A Long December Lyrics

by Counting Crows

A long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember the last thing that she says
"You were leaving, oh the days go by so fast"

And it's one more day up in The Canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven
I wish you would
Na na na
Yeah

The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl

And it's one more day up in The Canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California
I think you should
Na na na
Yeah

Drove up to hillside manor sometime after 2 a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her

And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass

And it's one more day up in The Canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean
I guess I should
Na na na
Yeah

Na na na, yeah
Na na na, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
